Check his legs for any injuries, possibly been injured whilst in velvet ,ive seen one similar and know this was the cause...
I have a very similar set of antlers on top of the book case. I believe the 'melted candle' effect on the antlers is a symptom of liver fluke. The first time I saw the roe deer, I said to my ghillie, that's a doe, but the second time I saw it from behind and was intrigued. I stalked it and shot the buck on the edge of a field with sheep in it.

I had a cull buck last year that had swept back antlers just like a goat. I could only presume he'd done it ducking under a fence.
